About

On WeddingWire since 2007

In the heart of Charleston, South Carolina, this vibrant historic garden setting overlooking the Ashley River is a breathtaking backdrop for couples to celebrate their partnership, creating unforgettable memories. The property features centuries-old dramatic live oak trees covered in Spanish Moss, and the iconic long white bridge, surely to create a fairly tale scene. The garden contains bright azaleas, wisteria, hydrangea, magnolias, and camellia, all of which bloom throughout the year.

This venue has three separate wedding spaces spread across an area of almost 500 acres. The Carriage House provides both indoor and outdoor areas and can accommodate weddings of up to 200 guests on its lawn.

The house鈥檚 spacious patio can be used for a cocktail hour before the reception and there is a get-ready room available for pre-ceremony preparations. The Piazza (formerly the Veranda) is available for small outdoor events. Ceremonies are performed on the Long White Bridge Lawn.The property also features private dressing rooms for any pre-ceremony preparations.

The Live Oak Pavilion provides a blank slate under spanish moss for intimate ceremonies and grand tented receptions alike.

For elopements, this venue can provide couples with access to the property to take pictures and hold a small ceremony in any of the event areas.

a literal dream come true!

We had our wedding at the Carriage House a venue within Magnolia Plantation, and it was a literal dream come true. The communication between me and Amanda the wedding coordinator was frequent and clear- her responses were immediate. This made for a really easy planning process. Even though it rained and our ceremony had to be moved inside the venue was transitioned into such a beautiful space that I didn't even think twice that my original plan wasn't happening. The Carriage House underwent renovations last year and OMG the updates are just so perfect! Thank you so much Magnolia & Amanda for such an unforgettable night!

Beautiful and romantic venue for wedding ceremony

My husband and I got married at Magnolia's last week, and it was perfect! We had our ceremony under "The Oaks," and turned out beautiful. Amanda was so helpful and kind throughout the planning process.
